Happy Sunday Lovelies!
Many of you know that in January of this year I was laid off from my job as a Medical Software Trainer, and passed my Life Coaching Certification Exam two days later! Since then I have been collecting unemployment and creating multiple-streams of income that will someday patchwork quilt into something that I'll be able to make a living on. And you know what? It's actually working!
Let me tell you what has been most gratifying about my current "work" situation:
And there are a few things that aren't so great about being self-employed, especially at this stage of the game. I'm not even going to make a list because it's really just ONE THING . . . and that is because the fire-under-my-ass is hot! hot! hot!, sometimes (most times?), I don't know when to stop HUSTLING. Oof! Oh yes, being able to work from home is awesome, but when I'm working on a weekend night until 10:00 pm on some crazy-ass idea that I think will be my next big thing? It's really not that great.
So in an effort to get some balance and reward myself for all the hustling, I am treating myself to an art retreat this weekend in Portland. Because we all need to go to Magical Radical Art Camp, right? I'll post some pictures next weekend, but in the meantime I am here with today's prompt which is:
Are you hustling to the point of exhaustion? When you take a break are you really taking a break? Or just hustling more on things that you don't consider "work"? (like Laundry and other household chores.). Today I'm encouraging you to reallllyy take a break. Let go of all the things you think you "should" be doing, and do something you love. Read a book. Make your favorite snack. Go for a photo-walk. Do a puzzle. Visit with a friend. Hang out selflessly with your kids. Whatever makes your soul happy - do THAT today. Because you're worth it.
Love and Light,
Meet me here on Saturdays for some weekly vibes - honoring the week that has past, and clearing the way for what's new. Gather your journal and favorite pen, along with a hot cup of coffee/tea/chai - and settle in for 30 minutes dedicated to YOU.
